Lotte is a psychologist at OpenUp. She employs a holistic view of recovery, seeing mental, emotional and physical health as one independent system. Together she will help you figure out how to move forward using your own resilience and autonomy.
As we are inclined to ruminate with our thoughts, endlessly analyzing, Lotte will stimulate you to get back into contact with what you feel, so that you can take choices from there. Balance between capacity and load, effort and relaxation and head and heart are central to her approach.
Your body often recognizes the first signs of how you are doing best. A tool to connect more with your body, and to learn to listen better to what your needs are and what you need, is the Mood Meter. She herself uses this to connects with her body again instead of staying in her head, and to consciously listen to what she needs.
Lotte obtained two master degrees from the University of Amsterdam. She graduated in clinical psychology and training & development. In addition to her work as a psychologist, she also teaches at universities. She has experience in addiction treatment and sexology. She is fluent in the languages Dutch, English and Spanish.
